Ongoing Monthly Volunteers for Farm

Throughout the year we have opportunities for individuals, groups and corporate groups to volunteer with us to provide services for Veterans and their families.  Volunteer days are usually the second or third Saturday of each month.

 

During the warmer months volunteers will build cold frames for families of Veterans with food insecurities, work in the garden and aquaponics greenhouse, and in cooler months, more indoor activities to help build organizational strength and community outreach.

 

Saturday volunteer days are usually from 10:00 am till 4:00 pm.
